Re: “Unfounded Fears

This article is incredibly biased. In San Francisco, 58% of Haight Street merchants who were interviewed one year after the sit/lie law went into effect there said that there were the same amount or more people loitering outside of their businesses as before the law was implemented. But somehow this reporter didn't manage to talk to any of them. As far as I know, there are already several laws in place in Berkeley that are used against people who are aggressive or disruptive outside of businesses--disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, and anti-camping ordinances, among others. If those aren't working, why is yet another law going to work any better? Meanwhile, I think of the times when I sit on the street. I have a knee injury, and it's usually when I'm tired and need a rest, and there's no where else to sit down. I've often done this when I've traveled abroad. Are we going to start citing tourists who sit on the sidewalk when they're tired from dragging their luggage around town? Berkeley can do better than this.
